Need dinner in a hurry? Don't get takeout. Make quick quesadillas.

If you have a package of whole-wheat tortillas, a cup of cooked chicken or canned beans, and a couple of vegetables in your kitchen, you've got the makings of quick quesadillas. This is a great way to use up leftover zucchini, bell peppers, red onions, tomatoes or frozen corn. Depending on your aptitude for spice, toss in cilantro, lime juice, garlic and dried cumin for bold flavors.

Each Friday one of the 100+ tasty video recipes from the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program is featured on the Mayo Clinic News Network, just in time for you to try at the weekend. You can also have the recipes delivered via the Mayo Clinic App.
